Monday, July 8, Pattana A & B – Stableford
1st Jimmy Carr (15) 37pts
2nd Robby Watts (8) 37pts
3rd Stuart Brown (9) 35pts
Today we were allocated A & B nines at Pattana and what a difference between the two nines. The A nine was surprisingly shabby with greens lumpy, slow and unmowed. The B nine was very different with fairways in better shape and greens that were smooth, quick and true.
The difference was remarkable and reflected in the scoring with those who didn’t play well on one improving markedly on the other. A case in point was today’s winner Jimmy Carr who had a poor front A nine but went crazy on the back to amass thirty-seven points and overtake second-placed Robby Watts on countback. Likewise Stuart Brown had a better back nine to take third place with thirty-five points.
Near pins went to Stuart Brown and Robby Watts with Kob Glover taking the difficult A3 island hole, the last B8 went unclaimed.
Wednesday, July 10, Green Valley – Stableford
1st Stuart Brown (9) 41pts
2nd Gerry Cooney (20) 39pts
3rd Niall Glover (20) 38pts
4th Neil Harvey (9) 38pts
The midweek game at Green Valley was enough enticement to lure out a field of eighteen to play a superior course which is now close to being back to its best again.
Scoring today was of a very high standard with most performing well, seven players scored thirty-six or more. Winner and course member Stuart Brown applied all his local knowledge to take first place with an excellent score of forty-one, he even managed to get a wayward drive heading into the jungle to hit a rock and bounce back into the middle of the fairway. Gerry Cooney continues to play to his best and took second place with thirty-nine points while Niall Glover had his best game to date with a fine thirty-eight and third place. Newcomer Neil Harvey took the last place on the podium also with thirty-eight but beaten on countback.
Near pins went to Rocky Ishikawa, Les Cobban, Stuart Brown, and almost an ace from Gavin Lang.
Friday, July 12, Khao Kheow B & C – Stableford
1st Gerry Cooney (19) 37pts
2nd Kob Glover (26) 37pts
3rd Stuart Brown (8) 36pts
4th Chris Delamare (1) 35pts
We had a good field of sixteen for the last game of the week at Khao Kheow where we were allocated B & C nines. Gerry Cooney did enough to take out first place on countback from Kob Glover, both on thirty-seven points. Stuart Brown took third with thirty-six and Chris Delamare rounded out the scoring with thirty-five points. Chris also had shot of the day on the ninth when his second from a bunker went straight into the hole for the only eagle of the day.
Near pins went to Geoff Cox, Tony Robbins, Stuart Brown, and Gary Smith.
